9780099552567: The Afterparty

A brilliantly clever, truly mind-bending satire about truth, lies, and the dark underbelly of 21st century celebrity life.
 
This book is different. You've really never read a book like this before. It's the story of an April night that never happened. A night that changes everything for nerdy Michael, a Fleet Street worker ant, when he agrees to take his boss's invitation to an A-list party at a London club.
 
Inside, reclusive movie star Hugo Marks is announcing his re-entrance to society. And the last thing Hugo needs is Mellody, his junkie supermodel wife, deciding now's the time to swan-dive off the wagon. Or drop-dead-gorgeous pop pup Calvin, hoping he can screw himself into their league.
 
Yet not one of them sees the real crisis coming. The moment that will tangle their four lives into an intricate disaster. It happens at the afterparty. But then, perhaps you knew that already.

Book Description Vintage Publishing, United Kingdom, 2012. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 194 x 130 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Literary agent Valerie Morrell receives an email from prospective author William Mendez, containing the first chapters of a promising new novel. Mendez s book tells the story of an April night, when a nervous, nerdy journalist takes his boss s invitation to an A-list party and meets a reclusive film star, his junkie supermodel wife and a wide-eyed pop singer. Valerie is hooked by the scandalous tale of decadence, drugs and disasters, but as the book unfolds, chapter by chapter, email by email, building to a terrible climax, a parallel story emerges - of an author with an unusual, almost unreal, desire for anonymity. Who is William Mendez? And whose tale is he really telling.WITH PREVIOUSLY UNSEEN MATERIAL FOR THE PAPERBACK LONGLISTED FOR THE DESMOND ELLIOTT PRIZE. Bookseller Inventory # AB99780099552567
